    The gentoo docs have a pretty good guide to setting up Linux as a router. If you do that, you can have a plain access point on the upstream side of the Linux box and a plain switch on the downstream side (Linux will handle all routing). If you already have the routers, just disable routing on them.
    Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
